For those people playing mobile,

These aren’t only in dungeons, they are also found in the south cave AND lava cave! Trust me, I’ve seen them in there. The ones in caves usually want spoiled meat, but I’ve done passive tames and if it says, for example, (on a diplo) “feed azulberry to tame” you don’t have to. You can give it kibble instead. So I guess you can give dung beetles poo if they want spoiled meat. Raw meat also works to tame them. Oh, and have yourselves a good day with beetles! (Sorry it was long.)
